My life is pretty simple, I love hearing the Word and I love my privacy, cooking, and singing. Trust me, it was hard maybe I should say soft, lol. But, I managed to learn so much about me and gave my time learning about and hearing explanations on what the Bible means. I found that I liked the stories and the Proverbs also Psalms. I went to a second-hand shop and bought a Catholic Bible, I say that because this one is considered to be the original transcribe version of interpretation translated work and it also includes all of the lost books that the King James Version doesn’t speak about. When I come home there is peace most of the time because nearly everyone is gone or near the door. I know that may sound cruel to some, but we all need time to ourselves. I found that I stayed in a relationship for the children, but there comes a time when we need to make a life for ourselves when they are going on with their lives. So I’m like Stella now, I am getting my groove back.
Realizing that I always wanted to go to school, I got it set up and I am a student. Starting back was a little difficult but what you know. no one can take that away. I did need to brush up on a few classes to bring me up to where I should be, passed. Yippy! I even enrolled in Summer classes to keep me in the mode. The next semester is slowing approaching just a week after my birthday, this is a great sign to me of how my year will go, yes a new year for me.
Sometimes you have to look at your life and laugh, this will just ease the mind. It also allows you to reflex and see if you have changed or if you are still a work in progress (WIP). I did the reflecting and had noticed that I was raised in a certain manner that I was not pleased with this and the cloth I was woven from was not what I wanted in my life. So, once I decide what predispositions I wanted to hold on too and those that I wanted to get rid of and made an adjustment and then I became my own person I was able to live my life. What I was taught may not be what I have grown to understand, until starting my own family.
Lifes Ups and Downs
Have made me stronger as a person, mother, friend, and servant. We all have our weakness and they have a funny way of showing up and wanting to be expressed, some times with the dissatisfaction of others. I had to learn how to turn the page-like turning the other cheek and just move past the person, situation or myself included. I learned as they say to build a bridge around myself. Also, letting go of hurt, pain or just bad thinking has hindered me and my progress, it was a lessoned learned. I have found that acknowledging what my flaws are and making amends have brought me a mighty long way. Speaking from experience, expectations go both ways and we must be willing to be human and accept others as they are. I had to weed out the unnecessary that was clogging my life.
Waiting for your moment
Desires are like dreams they have there place in my life. They both require me to move in different circles and develop platforms where I can share my Journey. Travelers have to always shine bright and see yourself prosperous not living in lack, I may have been here before because I refuse to accept the notion that we have to believe what society says about cultures, my destiny is in my hands and I intend to continue to pull myself up and show my children how to leave a trust- an inheritance that extends far beyond ourselves.
Ways to Relax
Cooking has always brought out the calm in me. My grandmother told me that I had to learn how to cook. She gave me three projects that were making tea cakes, sweet potatoes and ice cream, with her assistance, to say the least, the crowd was pleased.
One of my best sites to learn from is Allspice, the variety of choices is extensive.
Pillsbury has been around a very long time, and their casseroles are legendary. When my mother would make a mistake with an item or two that became a casserole and to my surprise not bad at all. You know the new term is a one-dish meal with everything you can put into them. People have become very apt in the kitchen especially since we truly learn that the Chinese restaurants serve dog, rat, snake and I won’t continue because it literally makes me want to puke. Wait, Popeyes and the fast-food establishment can not be trusted either. The people there do some very horrible things to people food and serve them anything. So I really do not eat out I prefer to eat at home and experiment with what I want and I know it is safe.
Singing has been apart of me since I can remember. Music speaks to everyone no matter the nationality, its a universal togetherness.
Some of my favorites are; Whitney Houston, Monica, Bee Bee & Cee Cee Winans, Old Skl Music, and my era House Music. Music today doesn’t have the same meaning because there is so much sexuality being displayed and the explicit lyrics leave something to be desired. TuPac was the first rapper I enjoyed then and now. He lived fast but he had a lot to say in his few years on this earth. Slow jams are so romantic and at the right time speaks to the love between two people.
This is just “O”, welcome to my world.
